Finish What You Start!

I have a terrible track record of finishing things that I've started.  I vowed I would try to at least finish a few of these started projects before I start anything new.  Well at least do a couple than start something new....can't completely change my mode of operation!!!  :)

Started a corner bookmark months ago and was trying to figure out how to be able to put it on a card but still remove it easily.  This card would work well to give someone along with a book.  The corner bookmark just slips over the corner of the card.


Of course I love using the Mini Magnolia's and well, you know I just can't get enough of punches and dies so had to use two of the new DooHickey Dies.  Thought Flying Tilda was perfect to flutter in with well wishes for someone not feeling well.  Also used the Spellbinders Lacy Circle, Circle, Tag, Cuttlebug Victorian embossing folder and Stampin' Up oval punch.

Always think everything needs dimension, so did shape the flowers and leaves even though I know they will get flattened in the book!

All the wonderful Magnolia products are HERE at Magnolia-licious!!!

Other Doohickey Dies can be found right HERE.

Now to go finish something else I started a long time ago!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I am overwhelmed at all the wonderful comments that have been left on my projects.  Believe me they are greatly appreciated and enjoyed!!!  THANK YOU!!!
Enjoy every day!!!
Patti Jo

Hi Patti Jo!
Your card with bookmark is beautiful.
One of your nicest creations. I love the colors you have chosen. your flowers look great on the floral paper. (super idea that I will try).
Mini Tilda is colored beautifully and fits in that spellbinder frame really well.

Oh this is just beautiful... Your flower remind me of some made by a lovely lady here in Australia - Leonie Em - who has published many books on paper art, she specializes on flowers. She also designed punches for the flowers too. Your vision with hthe flowers and Tilda is amazing
